Check out my review of Eloflex thread - a stretchable thread that can be used in a regular sewing machine with just regular straight stitch function. Special stitches (like small zigzag) or a serger are not required to sew knits or stretchy woven fabric with elastane. Just wind the bobbin with Eloflex thread and use the thread both in the needle and the bobbin to sew stretchy fabric. #sewing #sewingreview, #sewingtutorial #sewing101 #eloflex #sewingthread #sewinghacks #sewingknits #sewingtools
